Am I the only one seeing 6 power window control switches? The image on bottom switches are not clear, but why 6 switches??? Never seen in any vehicle.

This seems to be shaping up as another promising product. Some bits it has over the competition currently (Hector & Harrier)-

1) EPB with AUTO Hold ( Hector DCT gets this)
2) There seems to be AUTO up down for all windows
3) Electric sunshades (Looking at the 6 power window buttons)
4) ADAS


On the right hand side there appear to be 3 buttons beside the headlamp leveller switch. One of them is Hill Descent Control, other seems to be Lane Keep Assist/Lane Departure Warning. But I can't understand the third button. Please update if anyone can. It looks a bit like adaptive cruise control button, but I don't think it is usually provided so far from the steering. It would be an ergonomic disaster.

Is it only me who feels the gear level should be near and towards the driver and not further away?

But surely this looks like a well built and designed interior and with Mahindra taking the game up, this will be an interesting battle to see between the Korean twins and the Indian competitors (Tata and Mahindra).

Harrier vs XUV500 is surely a good competition to look out for.

Last 2 switches looks more like window roll down lock/unlock buttons as the white/black door sign is reversed and last row left switch seem to have cross(X) sign which generally represents window lock button.

Very encouraging developments. This will turn out to be a firecracker just like the original XUV many years ago. Even in their traditionally weak area like ride/handling, Mahindra has made huge leaps, going by the XUV300 for example. I'm sure they will push the limits with this one.

However, I must admit I'm more excited about what would be Ford's version of this car. Combine at least some of these features with the driving dynamics of a Ford - and I can't wait for the result.

Ya, I get it.. usually its just a single switch in Mahindra current Scorpio/XUV for rear window lock, that's why the question. I think its not required to lock separate window. They can cut costs on such unimportant stuff than increasing here and cutting down on something more requred.

Let's just hope that the interiors are up to the mark, because if it they are not way better than the outgoing model, the competition is brutal this time with the Seltos and the rest. Mahindra better keep up. Even when Jeep was introduced, Mahindra interiors felt like sitting in an old M800.

Are there any confirmed news about the kind of headlights and the 4x4 setup ?

It gets LED headlamps, not sure if it will be a projector unit.
No sure news about the 4x4 setup, but I guess they will offer it, to differentiate from Harrier/Hector.

Apart from the flat bottom, that steering looks like it was lifted straight out of a Hyundai Creta

The way we (have to?) drive in India, how will lane keep assist/departure warnings work? I assume they can be shut off when desired.

Also, this does not look like its the top spec trim. There is still a key inserted into a key hole and no panaromic/regular sun roof.

I guess it will work on expressways and national highways where the markings are visible.

I was considering the XUV500 (latest iteration) and the interiors were one of the main reason I dropped it. But after seeing what they have achieved on Marazzo, I would expect the interiors of the next gen car to be much ahead. Only hope that there are no quirkiness which Mahindra designs are known for .

There it is no problem.
It will be a hazard in city driving though, especially if it tries to pull you back into lane when you’re trying to avoid a pothole or a reckless driver.
